2001 VW Beetle Will not start

Hi- I bought a used 2001 VW Beetle about 8 months ago and it has been driving and acting fine until yesterday it decided not to start.  I drove it in the morning and came back a few hours later and it will not turn over.   There was above a 1/4 tank of gas so I am assuming it is not the gas gage, and we tried to jump it and still nothing.  All the lights come on it just will not turn over.  I recently drove through a day of rain and was in the midst of a few days of smoke and ash from the SoCal fires so could these two have something to do with it?

    Thank you for your help, while I wish it was as simple as a cable/battery issue it turned out to be my fuel pump.  


    Thanks tho:)

I have a 2001 VW Beetle Turbo. My girlfriend was driving it and it was driving hard, it stalled out on her and won't start back. I have tried to coast start it and nothing. It sounds like it is turning over but not actually trying to start. I have about 8 codes that show up.

Hi.
Check the heavy duty cables from the battery to the starter motor and solenoid and also the battery earthing (grounding?) - there terminals could be corroded / burned.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at all. Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D

    Glad you got it fixed! Did they explain how a faulty fuel pump would prevent the car from "turning over" - as opposed to turning over but not starting? Weird! D.

Hi i bought a vw beetle was running fine the last few days. I went to drive it yesterday and it wont start the immobiliser is showing its not flashing tho. My step dad replaced the car keys battery the day...


My immobiliser keeps flashing until I put the key in the ignition and then it stops. Normally changing key batteries has a period that if the battery is changed inside that time (say 5 minutes) then the key program will not loose memory Run fault codes to see if there is a problem in the electronics. Otherwise you may have to take the car to the dealer to have the key reprogrammed to the cpu in the car

Flapping noise


A flapping noise is sometimes the noise made by a drive belt that is destroying itself, though in your case it might have a different cause.

You need to lift the bonnet and see what is going on, something you should have done when you first heard the noise as a flapping drive belt could damage wiring, brakes and anything else in the vicinity. I once warned a guy about his belt which he decided to leave until payday only for him to call me out later as the flapping belt had ruined the radiator.

The no-start condition might be related or might not...

Start with checking your coolant level( only use VW coolant if low). If full, change out your coolant temp sensor. Buy the one from the dealership. The others are ****.
